Speaking at the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, Bill Cosby criticized the behaviour of low-income African Americans for their lack of self-development. This collection is not so much a response to Cosby's remarks as it is an examination of the problem from multiple perspectives; it draws on the sociological, psychological, educational, economic, and historical elements.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"Confronting controversy head-on, this volume provides a multi-layered perspective that can and should frame the debate sparked by Bill Cosby's well-publicized criticism of low-income Black Americans... this is a thoughtful synthesis that will help turn controversy into useful and productive dialog." - Professor Ralphaline Banks, Syracuse University"
